The Flight of the Conchords near the end of their 2009 Spring US tour with a pit stop in Las Vegas, playing at The Joint and reviewed by the local paper, which says the pair turned in a “riotous 90-minute set of acoustic numbers about love, ladies and killer robots, culled from the two seasons of their hit HBO comedy series.” Jemaine marveled about the ‘so rock and roll’ vibe of the Hard Rock, enamoured with the Bon Jovi jeans exhibit. Bret told the mostly-seated crowd to ‘take a few deep breaths because everyone up front is getting crushed.’ The audience loved it, throwing tighty whiteys to the band after the sensitive rocker ‘I Got Hurt Feelings.’ ‘It’s 51 minutes away until midnight,’ Jemaine said afterward. ‘That’s how rock we are.'”
